Finished 500kms of the Camino. Good food, plenty of history but packed with tourists

Beautiful cozy warm little city, capital of Galicia, the Celtic land. It’s known as the culmination of the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage route, and the alleged burial site of the Biblical apostle St. James. Very historic university and if you like food and architecture, this is your city. An hour away from A Coruña and Vigo, worth a visit.


One of the most beautiful cities in Spain. With all the charm of the celtic culture, including bagpipes, lots of rain and extremely good (and cheap) seafood! Don't forget the cathedral!
